A creative adventure to renew a love for handwritten sentiments with snail mail and mail art. *sprinkled with random moments of live being lived*

Thank you for the kind words and support. I am currently not looking for new pen pals.

Letters to Love By

Sneak peak at finishing up one #creativehappymail project; and the inspiration of my next Creative Exchange!

Last day of vacation and finished the last of my postcards. Sad to leave my family but it’s been a wild and crazy adventure! Really glad I get to share bits and pieces with all of my pen pals.

Cruise treats! There was a different towel animal every night, the elephant was my favorite companion while writing postcards. Random cards went out - look out for them!

(Back from a social media break.) Minneapolis was the layover to get to our next stop - my city away from the Bay - NYC!

My dearest pen pals, I make my apologies. Life has stalled my snail mailing efforts, but I’m about to put a dent into some catch up! I’ll be out of town for a bit but I promise random postcards will go out with love!

Koi street art photo trade with letterstoloveby. Her photo (top) was taken in San Francisco and mine (bottom) was taken in New Orleans. Thanks for another trade J!

K totally spoiled me with so many great postcards from New Orleans. The one I was really in love with is where she found Koi streetart by Jeremy Novy - an SF artist who spreads a little Koi across the world. So I had to work on getting her a Koi postcard to trade. Thanks for the great set of cards, parttimecynic If you could share where you find the postcard packs that you use, I’ll send you more Koi as I find them! Also, the hand cancel on this card was totally unexpected! The Giants have pulled off some miracles so I guess the city is just in the team spirit

My most prized set of stationery, Vera Wang bloom envelope liners, triple panel debossed card with lapis ink. Just writing a few special sentiments for tomorrow.

I couldn’t resist. For the girl who’s never completed a journal EVER, it’s rather ambitious to have two planners. But they’re Kate Spade?! One is for personal events and to-do, the other will be for business. Thanks @1yssrocks for Dottie, and I finally found the more nautical one.

Mission 014 Update: MERISSA CHERIE: Snail Mail | Dossier Challenge

I am just floored by this post by Merissa Cherie. The lovely 41191 forwarded on her Mission and Merissa just ran with it!

Missions have been very quiet lately, but when news pop up - boy does it make some noise.

Thank you 41191 for passing it on, and I hope Merissa sees this - thank you for the wonderful share!

International Outgoing to Italy, Ireland and Canada! I am really bad at taking pictures when writing at night. So these ladies will just have to wait to see inside.
